LVAIC Campus Sustainability Conference

February 15 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Free

This conference consists of sustainability-themed presentations, interactive workshops, poster sessions and exhibitor forums. The theme of resilient sustainability efforts on a college campus is supported throughout the conference.

The Lehigh Valley Association of Independent Colleges (LVAIC), comprised of founding members Cedar Crest College, DeSales University, Lafayette College, Lehigh University, Moravian College, and Muhlenberg College, solicits proposals for speakers at the LVAIC Campus Sustainability Conference 2020.

The purpose of the conference is to explore sustainability projects, cultivate dialogue and shared learning and encourage concrete action promoting responsible stewardship of the natural environment and equitable community in the areas where we live and work.

The conference will consist of presentations, workshops and a poster session. The principal participants and target audience for the conference include students, faculty, and staff. We welcome presentation proposals on case studies, pilot programs, best practices, infusing sustainability concepts into curriculum, and research. In addition to discussing problems, the presentations should focus on lessons learned and developing solutions.
